so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. and celebrex is not a narcotic. when it comes to relieving your arthritis pain, you and your doctor need to balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, including celebrex, may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, including celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. do not take celebrex if you've had an asthma attack, hives, or other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing.

♪ ♪ money, money, money giving to charity is such an important part of the holiday season for so many americans. last year, we donated $227 billion to charity, with one-quarter coming between thanksgiving and new year's. with so many people facing hard times right now, it's getting harder and harder for americans to give. mellody hobson, president of ariel investments gives you five tips. last year, charities took a big hit after the financial crisis in 2009. what's the most important thing that families need to know now if they want to give? >> you're right. charities were down 4% last year, during a time when people really need the money. the most important thing that we can consider is making a budget. and not giving more than we can afford. and certainly, not going into
debt in order to give to a charity. as americans, we're extraordinarily generous. but we need to be very, very careful. >> and what kind of background work do you need to do to determine which charities will use your money the best? >> george, with over 2 million charities out there, there's a lot of choices. doing some legwork really does help. you want to make sure that the money actually goes to the cause. and not the overhead of the organization. the rule of thumb is to have an organization that does not spend more than 35% of your contribution on things like fund-raising and rent and salaries. and their website can actually help you do the research. charitynavigator.org. as well as guidestar.org. the american association of philanthropist has a website where they rank 500 charities. that's called charitywatch.org. you can walk into your local charity and ask them questions and do your own legwork and research, too. >> you say there's ways to give to charities without spending a
dime at all. >> yes. >> what are some of the alternatives? >> one thing. if you know you're getting holiday gifts from friends or family, you can say, in lieu of a gift, make a charitable donation in my name. you can also, in this day and age, get the equivalent of a charity gift card. networkforgood.org, allows you to load up a card from $10 to $5 $50. you have to make the donation within six months. or the money actually goes away. your own credit card, american express has a program called members give, where you redeem your rewards points and give them to charity. you can also redeem the points for charity certificates as gifts for friends. and they have a million charities you can choose from. >> i've used that before. it's such a great program. you get on the website. and you can see the teacher you're going to hire or the
classroom you're going to supply. it's fantastic stuff. but there are a lot of scams out there. as well. >> yes. >> how do you make sure you avoid the scams? >> the scams come out in numbers in the holidays or when we've had a disaster. if you're at all leery, you can contact your better business bureau. they also have a site, bbb.org/charity, where you can look up the records of charities. have they been legitimate? you can contact your local attorney general. always be wary of in-bound requests. in-bound e-mails, in-bound calls, i'm leery. and understand that a lot of organizations out there that are fraudule fraudulent, do a good job of looking and feeling like a legitimate organization. by just changing one letter in their name or things like that. you want to be very, very careful. >> finally, most charitable donations are tax-deductible. how do you make sure you get the deduction? >> you can only get the
deduction if you itemize your tax return. and you use a 501-c-3. that's the tax code. and you want to make sure no matter what, the amount of money you're giving, you have the receipt. people who gave to the haitian relief effort, when they texted, the irs said in that situation, your phone bill is your receipt. >> mellody hobson, thanks very much. and many employers match contributions to charities. we have more on that, at abcnews.com/gma. when we come back, it's rachael ray.
